Oh my business-minded mind,
Trade in the wealth
Of the Divine Essence.

Oh my business-minded mind
Trade in the wealth
Of the Divine Essence.

Through the True Sound of Wisdom
You will know
This wealth.

Let all beings
Continually meditate
And repeat
Har…Har…
The Essence of the Divine
In all.

You will earn
A profit
From doing this
Every day.


By the destiny given
By the Divine

This wealth
Comes to those
And intermixes
In their being.

Says Naanak,
Oh my business-minded mind,
Let it happen.
Trade in the wealth
Of the Divine Essence. (31)

Tongue!

No matter
What tastes
You sample

Your thirst
Is not going to go.

Your thirst
Is not going to go.

There is no other taste
Anywhere
That will satisfy you

So long as
You do not possess
The sweet taste
Of the Divine Essence
Inside you.

When you possess
That sweet taste
Of the Divine
Inside you

Drink it in.

Drink in the taste
Of your Inner Divinity.

After that,
No earthly desires
Will bind you
Again.

When the soul
Is ripe enough
For grace
To prevail

And the
True Sound of Wisdom
Intermixes
In your being

Then the sweet taste
Of the Divine
Comes.

Says Naanak,
All other tastes
Are completely
Forgotten

When the Divine
Comes
To live
In the mind. (32)

Body of mine!

The Creator put
The Divine Light
Inside you

And then you came
Into the world.

The Creator put
The Divine Light
Inside you

And then you came
Into the world.

That Divine Essence
Is Herself
The Mother

And Himself
The Father.

Through that Power
A being takes form
And the physical world
Becomes visible.

By the blessing
And gift
Of the Sound of Wisdom

You will understand this
In the depth of your being.

And then you
Will be able to go along
With the changes and turns of life -

Like a river
Flowing into
The ocean.

Going along
With the changes
And turns of life

You will come
To see
The Divine
In everything.

Says Naanak,
The foundation
Of the earth
Was fashioned

And the Divine Light
Placed inside it.

And then you
(Body of mine)
Came into
The world. (33)

When I heard
That my Beloved Lord and Master
Was on His way

My mind became filled
With a deep longing
To see Him.

Oh my dear girlfriends,
Sing happy happy songs
Of the Divine

Who has made
My home
A sacred place.

Sing
And keep singing
Joyous songs
Of the Divine
My sweet girl-friends.

Grief and pain
No longer
Have any power
Over me.

Attached
To the feet
Of the Teacher

Those days
Are blessed
With such good fortune

When my own
Beloved Husband
Appears to me.

Through the Shabad –
The Sound Current
That cuts the ego

Given by
The Sound of Wisdom

I have come to know

The subtle
Silent
Language
Of the Divine.

How I enjoy
That Creative Lord
Who dwells
Within me
As my own Spirit.

How I enjoy
The sweet taste
Of that One.

Says Naanak,
My Lord and Master
Himself
Arranges the meeting.

He is the cause
And He – the effect –
Of that Yoga

That Union

Of the Beloved
With her One True Love. (34)

Body of mine!

After coming
Into the world

What are you doing?

What consequences
Are you creating
With your actions?

What are you doing?

What consequences
Are you creating
With your actions??

You, Body,
Who has come
Into the world?

The Divine Energy
Which created
And fashioned you

The Essence of that Divinity
Does not live
In your mind.

Through the blessing
And gift
Of the Sound of Wisdom

The Divine Essence
Comes to live
In the mind.

Then,
Your latent potential
Wakes up and
Becomes manifest

And what was written
For you
As your destiny

You receive.

Says Naanak,
This body
Becomes successful

For those
Whose awareness
Remains absorbed
With the True Sound of Wisdom. (35)

All Love in the Divine,

Ek Ong Kaar Kaur
